Case Study: Adopting SRE Principles at StackOverflow
Tom Limoncelli, Stack Exchange, Inc.
Adopting SRE principles at sites other than "unicorn companies" can be a challenge. In this talk I’ll review our experience trying to adopt SRE principles at StackExchange.com/StackOverflow.com. The failures are as educational as the successes. I’ll cover a number of tools that are publicly available, and techniques that work well at smaller companies. These include monitoring solutions like Boson, and sections of The Practice of Cloud System Administration that can be used to educate others about the SRE ways.
